The Butte County Resource Conservation District and the Natural Resources Conservation Services have adopted a four-mile stretch of Hwy 99 through Caltrans’ Adopt-A-Highway Program. The stretch of highway near the Hwy 162 junction was adopted by both agencies in order to help keep it litter free on a monthly basis.
On January 25, employees from both agencies worked alongside volunteers to pick up trash along the highway. The next scheduled Adopt-A-Highway Volunteer Work Day is scheduled for February 13 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Those interested in joining in the volunteer effort can meet at the intersection of Hwy 99 and 162 in the parking lot west of Hwy 99 at 9 a.m. Volunteers are recommended wear long pants, sleeves, and sturdy boots. It is also advised to bring water.
Safety gear and work supplies will be provided.
